'For me, it is only the first leg, it is only the first half of the tie'.

Particularly in the second-half, Vertonghen epitomised Spurs' want to play on the front foot, with his glorious cross setting up Son for the games opening goal. "We took some rash decisions".

Dortmund's USA midfielder Christian Pulisic (left) and Tottenham Hotspur's Ivorian defender Serge Aurier battle for the ball during the Uefa Champions League first leg match at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday night.

Mauricio Pochettino saluted his talismanic goalscorer Son Heung-min after the Tottenham forward helped to move the team to within touching distance of the Champions League quarter-finals. We need to feel proud about the performance, so happy but at the same time, calm, because there is still a lot of work to do. "And then the double strike towards the end killed us off".

"It was a massive victory and the players deserve all the credit". For these boys it'a test because they are rich before they play'.

"It's only the first leg, the first half of the tie".


Llorente's header from a Christian Eriksen corner sealed the 3-0 win.

Pochettino devised a clever game-plan that eventually frustrated Dortmund and secured Tottenham's first ever Champions League knockout-round win at home. "What they are doing this season is incredible". The timing of the first goal was very important, the cross was unreal, I didn't have to do anything, just touch the ball. "It's good, it's nice". 'He was fantastic again.

Danny Rose is on the bench, while Harry Kane (ankle), Dele Alli (hamstring), and Ben Davies (groin) are all still in the treatment room. He smiles and he creates energy in every single game. And they were made to pay early in the second half when Son Heung-min opened the scoring for Tottenham in the 47th minute. But Tottenham's manager played down the success of his tactics.

"3-0 is a very good result but at the same time we have to think that we have to finish the job".

Pochettino's side had been under the cosh as Dortmund dominated the first half at Wembley, but Hugo Lloris kept them level with a series of fine saves.
